FLEUR – Yellovelo director & Everything off the bike
Fleur‘s studies and passion for travel ultimately led her to working in the tourism industry home and abroad since leaving college. The combination of Alex’s lust for road cycling and Fleur’s appetite for travel inevitably gave life to Yellovelo. To have a tour operation business was always the dream!
In the early days of Yellovelo and being new to the sport herself, Fleur was often the guinea pig for new rides with those in mind that were relatively new to the sport or new to riding in the Alps. Together, they were able to add their own experiences to both sides to the spectrum, beginners & experienced riders alike to tailor make rides to suit all.
Fleur takes care of all the road support and empathises well with the riders emotions and physical hardships one may endure on the bike. Anticipating their nutritional and motivational needs, the velovan, a word of encouragement and cup of tea is never too far away.
Fleur has many times been out of her comfort zone but wanted to be able to encourage others to do the same and feel the rewards of doing so. Her thoughts are if she can do it, then anyone can! Enjoying new challenges year in year out, getting fitter, faster and learning new skills, has enabled her to explore new destinations has left her wanting more and is convinced others will feel the same way.
With our fully led and supported rides you can feel that you can achieve what you may have felt was previously out of reach. The YELLOVELO experience a must for every cyclist’s bucket list
